Support Internet Explorer 8
In Octopus v2 you have removed support for IE8. Given this shipped with Windows 7, this seems a bit aggressive - large enterprises are notoriously laggard in this regard, and many have only just finished doing their Win 7 rollouts. Upgraded browsers will come with upgraded OS's, and given this is unlikely to be Windows 8, this will be a while yet.
Whilst a developer typically has a degree of control over their desktop, the same cannot be said for VDI environments, which typically take the bare bones corporate desktop, with no provision for alternative browsers. This can prevent workers from monitoring deployments remotely (eg from home) where no other access exists to the corporate environment.
It also limits the utility of Octopus as a visibility tool for management, if they have to upgrade their browser to use the dashboard.
I’ve worked at a lot of companies which ran outdated OS’s and browsers, and it was frustrating. I can totally sympathise.
I’ve decided to mark this one as declined though, and posted some thoughts here: http://octopusdeploy.com/blog/feature-prioritization

Agree, should be declined. In fact, supporting IE9 (as you currently do) is a bit of a stretch too!
